Books and the aroma of baking bread
The front which came through last night bringing tornado warnings south of us and heavy winds-rain to our area has also been the culprit behind this achy-stuffy head. Even then I can still enjoy the aroma of baking bread coming from the oven. Yum...
There is one Green Mountain Apple Cider k-cup hiding behind a can of tomatoes in my kitchen cabinet. It is calling my name and telling me this is the time to pop it in the red Kreuig. Hot apple cider was made for such a blustery day.
I've been reading both The Everlasting Meal and Pippa Middleton's Celebration. A true review will follow later but I can say that both are fun to read in their own way. I'm continuing to work my way through Call the Midwife, whose long time in reading has nothing to do with how much I like it (for I do!) but more about the plethora of reading material available at the moment.
Yesterday, a package awaited at the rural mailbox containing a copy of the 1922 book The Next to Nothing House. It had been on my Wish List for a very long time and recently purchased when a very inexpensive copy became available.
It was through Lanier that I first read about the book... here. You may think an entire book about a woman talking about her house and furniture would not be all that interesting but it truly is wonderful!
I have to admit, though... the affect on my head from this front coming through has lessened my interest in reading a little.
Instead, I can see in my near future a soft pillow and a throw and a DVD popped in the player as I sip hot apple cider and indulge in whole wheat honey bread with a slather of real butter.
Perhaps the perfect way to enjoy an afternoon when everything on my To Do list has been checked off? I think so...
